Overheard and Obsessions: March 30, 2018


Are there tid-bits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table, or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?

“Best relationship of my adult life and it’s with a shoe. Go figure.”

“I feel that a long-haired wig will provide almost as much protection as a typical helmet.”

“Because we are all God’s creatures. That, and I don’t like squishing them. It’s icky.”

“Doesn’t everybody have a ‘no farting’ rule?”

“Trust me, that’s something you don’t want to Google.”


Is there anything you can’t stop thinking about, listening to, watching, eating, or drinking? Obsessions are meant to be your of-the-moment fixation.
